Measuring and Scoring the Trout

The Measuring Tube
Measuring tube

Place fish in tube and pinch tail down to get correct length in cm's.
Every cm counts!

If you have an aggressive trout, be sure to get onto the shore to measure.
Every fish counts!


Holding Bucket

If we are short on Controllers, we will issue a Holding Bucket to the angler, and ask that the Controller score beats next to each other. Controllers will measure, score and release fish from the Holding Bucket as soon as you return to the beat, be cautious and disturb the water as little as possible.

Holding Bucket Use and Process
Angler will place bucket in slow flow area of river, level and secure spot
Make sure bucket is at least 12 inches under the water
Place 2-3 large flat rocks into Bucket to weight it down
Angler may lift and reposition bucket along their beat
Controller will score fish where bucket lies, only Angler may move bucket
